Underage DUI Attorney in Delaware
Under 21 and facing charges for DUI? Call our firm.
Any driver under the age of 21 that is believed to have been driving while under the influence of alcohol will be facing very serious consequences in Delaware. At The Law Office of Brian Jones, LLC, we serve as defense counsel for young people accused
DUI offenses, from misdemeanor to felony. The penalties imposed upon a young driver will include license suspension and fines, even if the quantity of alcohol registering in a chemical testing is extremely low. If the BAC level registers at .08 or higher, your license will be revoked until you reach age 21, and you will be treated as an adult offender, facing the same penalties, including jail time, community service, and mandated alcohol treatment classes. The
zero tolerance law in Delaware can create a very serious situation for any young person who is believed to be operating a vehicle while under the influence.
